Top 10 Draft Steals of 2007
Brady Quinn, QB
When Quinn dropped farther than anyone predicted, there was a flurry of activity to acquire him. The Browns did the right thing going for broke to select the quarterback they hope will lead them into the future.
Ryan Kalil, C
An undersized Kalil unexpectedly slid late into round two. He could start for Carolina in a year or so.
Antonio Pittman, RB
Pittman was a major steal and will offer depth behind Reggie Bush and the oft-injured Deuce McAllister.
Steve Breaston, WR
Besides offering quality depth at receiver, Breaston could be the team's return specialist this season.
Dallas Sartz, LB
Sartz is a quality linebacker who many graded as first-day material. He'll offer competition at linebacker and could eventually start.
Tarell Brown, CB
The Niners need a nickel back and someone to compete against present starter Shawntae Spencer. Brown offers both.
Derek Landri, DT
He will add depth and intensity to the Jaguars tackle position. He will also be an option if Marcus Stroud or John Henderson demand a pay raise.
Adam Koets, LT
The Giants desperately need a young developmental left tackle to protect Eli Manning. Koets has the tools to eventually become a starter.
Mason Crosby, K
The Packers are set at kicker, but Crosby was too good to pass up. They may be tempted to keep him on the roster just for long field goal duty.
David Irons, CB
Irons could step in immediately and become the Falcons' nickel back.
